Like the soundtrack to a video game that was never developed, based on an 80's computer fantasy movie that was never filmed, is the sound of "Inside the Blue Tube", the newest release from Rezkar. This full length album follows up on the deep and moody tech-house grooves of his previous release, and brings in a more driving techno edge to the tracks, but through use of subtle pads in odd harmonies and shuffled syncopations. Quirky melodies and subtle goa-style synth lines run through...

The creator of this release, Instant, was one of the producers invited to participate in the sample pool project. It took a while, but he came through for us, and how! This is the most unique release on this label, and may possibly have the distinction of being the longest single netlabel release to date. Readers are encouraged to disprove me if I am wrong! Weighing in at a hefty 8 and a half hours, this release provides an entire sleep cycle of unusual and enjoyable sounds, each one named...

When we put out a call for demos, Roebin de Freitas, a young lad from Ghent, Belgium, sent a zip of smooth, streamlined melodic minimal techno, which made a nice impression. On this label, guest artists are encouraged to take risks and be inventive, so Roebin obliged and after a few months, presented us with the full album of quirky, expressive IDM style tracks. Each track is named after an animal, and many of the tracks display rhythms and syncopations more like the movement of animals than...

It's a pleasure to have this guest release from mystified on Jon7.net Microlabel, from a man whose very name is synonomous with being prolific. This release continues mystified's previous work in phonography and subsequent manipulation, and is an interesting additonal chapter to the story mystified's music and field recordings tell about the life and world he lives in. (I myself am now more curious than ever to visit St. Louis to see and hear these types of things for myself!) All material was...

When deciding how to release the "Sound Without Film" originals, I put out an open call for remixes on a few forums to see what kind of interest there would be. Surprisingly, there was considerable interest from members of diferent netlabels, and the Archive.org Netlabel forum users. The remixes on this release are in the order they were received, and I am pleased to present them all to you. The talented remixers come from all over, and include memebers of Kikapu, Walltapper,...

In late 2004 I was given the heads-up by a filmmaker friend of mine that he was working on a new film, and that he wanted me to supply the music. Over the next year and a half we occasionally bumped into each other, each time with him reminding me that he still wanted music. He described the film as being like "Bagdad Cafe", only a bit more gothic. The pieces on this release are the themes that were going to be submitted for use in the film, but alas, the film never got finished. I...

"Artefacts" Is a collection of many of my early tracks that were composed from a period between 1995-1997, during a time when I was first beginning to stretch out and compose electronic music on my own. I had been performing in a number of bands previous to this point, and had decided to trade it in for a while for some solo sound exploration. The tracks on this album reflect a number of different sounds and techniques I was using at the time, and it is a fascinating document through...

In late summer of 2006, labelmate Vanilla Sandro and I were wrapping up work on our respective halves of 'Divided States/Territory' [JON7NET018]. He began to tell me about a pool of samples he was creating for an upcoming project, and he suggested that I would enjoy using them as well for a project of my own. We decided then that after finishing work on the other projects we were both working on that it would be fun to each do a release based on those samples. Gradually it came to us to invite...

Our second guest release from Mystified, "Puzzle Street" is a follow up to his previous release "Sidewalk Salad", and it's a natural one. Many of the same themes are continued in this release, the manipulation of real-world sounds and the simple, sometimes microscopic recording of sounds for their own sake. Subdued beats and basslines give some tracks a relaxed classic Mystified feeling. The ambience created by the use of field recordings gives the album an overall feeling...

These pieces were inspired afte reading a review of "music is rotted one note" by Squarepusher, and while they bear very little relation to that album, motivation is motivation. The tracks were mostly created in a couple of afternoons, then 3 months later additional tracks were discovered on a CD i had purposely hidden from myself. They fit the feeling of the others so they were added. The name comes from the idea that when certain pieces of music appear to provide only very minimal...

The first dance release on this netlabel in a while, these four scenic house tracks were provided by Rezkar in South Africa. While it's summer here, it's winter there and these tracks provide a gentle evening-into-night feeling. Rezkar is currently working on a new full-length album to be released in the future, so for now enjoy this introduction to his style!

Three pieces that were recorded around the same time, but were orphans from any other proper releases 'Air and Earth' and 'Virgo Pt. I' use simple minimal rhythms and heavy layers of granulated sounds. 'Virgo pt. I' is accompanied by a video, available at www.deeplydeep.com. 'Nightfall' uses layers of household item rhythms to create it's swirling hypnotic texture.

This release comes from Vanilla Sandro, the newest artist on jon7.net microlabel. Coming from Maastricht, the Netherlands, his style is developing a brooding mxture of dark experimental ambience and stripped down minimal rhythms. The two minimal tech tracks and the two dark-edged ambient tracks on this release carry through them a cinematic feel, picturing scenes of dark times and moods. We're happy to have him in the family here, and you can visit his website at www.vanillasandro.com

After spending some time in the darker end of sound lately on this label, we take a different turn and present some moody and melodic IDM style tracks we have been enjoying lately. Impset (Christophe Cabanie) has been excited by the sounds of electronic music for more than a decade, and has recently begun producing his own tracks. Impset is but one of his many production projects, and the music is warm, dubby, textural ambient, which at times carries a disquieting feel but remains fascinating...

"Distant Signals" is some of my more ambient, almost new-age style of work. These pieces were largely created as a means of achieving an ultra-peaceful state of mind. All I can really say is that you will enjoy listening to it as you lie back, imagining being a signal passing through space from one node to another, the way i envisioned it while making these tracks.

Continuing with the theme of 'Winter music' come these two pieces. The first uses naturally abundant rain sounds to re-create the unsettling power of the heavy Oregon rainstorms. The second is a short snowflake dance in honor of the snow that so rarely falls here in the winter, except on the day the cover pictures were taken, some 2 weeks after the recording was finished.

Three sonic pictures of a walk through nearly-empty fields. these pieces in my mind take me back to places and times as a kid i use to feel very connected, and hoped someday to be able to translate into some form of art. The cover art also takes advantage of the 'wood imagery' that is very prevalent in Oregon, but since there are no lightning bugs here, that comes from my memories of living in the South.

These pieces was created out of assigning harmonically related patterns to MIDI notes determined by dice. I had been reading a book that suggested that no music created from random processes could possibly have a spiritual nature like 'real' music. I accepted that as a challenge right away! The remixes were done later and are just now seeing the light of day on the internet.

This collection of remixes was done in 2000 from my own material that had been gathering since early 1996. At this time in my musical progress, I was working with fairly primitive equipment, and didn't know anyone even in my growing circle of electronic musicians that was capable of or even interested in remixing each other's material. So I set out and did it myself. Building upon many of the same techniques I was using, I applied old and new techniques to the remixes. I had been just as...

After some intriguing conversations with Thomas Park (aka Mystified) about fractal and generative music, I decided the time was right for me to try composing a fractal piece of my own. I had decided that the ocean floor would be the theme I would work with. That inspiration came from DJ Mitch, whose Deeply Deep netlabel had released some music and video of mine, and had as its motto, "exploring the ocean floor of music". This release was originally intended for him, but I have decided...

Like a derivation of a derivation on a proof comes this collection of mixes and remixes of tracks from our previous release, "Sourcery". In the midnight kitchens of Jon7.net HQ, the component sauces of "Sourcery" were combined and modified to create new recipes. Some natural new ones appeared, such as "Steak Marinade" and "Honey Mustard". But as the night wore on, the recipes became stranger, resulting in such edible goodies as "Hot Fish Syrup"...

Two long-form ambient pieces somewhat in the style of 'Ambient Numbers' [JON7NET003], using drones, synth arpeggios, and semi-randomized processes. Great pains have been taken to prevent these pieces from being unlistenably repetitive, but the most will be gained by listening to them at night, on the edge of sleep.

"Can of Drone" is the third guest release for this label by mystified, and the material presented within explores some new sonic territory that departs somewhat from previous work. The overall sound is bolder and noisier, and successfully blends elements of noise, dark ambient and home-taped sound in a way that cleverly avoids easy classification. The sounds are sometimes lush and dense, other times sparse and gritty, but all throughout this release and its many moods, the sonic...

Close your eyes. Think for a moment of the most forlorn place you have ever visited and imagine what sounds the winds and the skies make, as they realize that they are as trapped in the scene as you feel by just observing it. From the respctive labs of Jon 7 and Vanilla Sandro come these two dark explorations into forbidding areas. The first, "Divided States", paints a picture of a country isolated from the rest of the world for a decade, whose iron curtain has only recently...

Having had the opportunity of releasing one album already by Instant, the 8.5 hour epic "Sourcery", when we we got word that Instant (aka Ben Kelly) had something new in mind for us, we (that is to say, me) were excited and couldn't wait to see what he had created. The results were surprising: this new collection of material was also nearly epic in length (although at a more modest 4.5 hours), and was largely composed of long, highly rhythm-driven, unusually stark minimal soundscapes....

I spent most of the summer hanging out with friends in the rougher part of town and had the fortune of catching the train early in the morning at a crossing near the grain mill. The resulting field recording was subjected to numerous effects processes and melded together in an elongated collage of train sounds. The recording itself was done on a portable cassette recorder with a handheld mike, and the lo-fi recording gave this release a very gritty, rough quality (somewhat reminiscent of the...

This release brings together several different themes that were composed during various points in late 2006 and early 2007 that were intended for a particular album project of mine that would have blended actual songs (with lyrics and vocals, not quite standard for the music released on this label) with instrumental and experimental sound pieces. Each one of these pieces is in a different style, some using fractal composition methods, some using different deconstruction methods, and others...

" In collusion" is a sound collage project that was begun in November 2006, partially as a way of making use of several batches of leftover sounds from other projects. As it often does, life created several distractions, and the piece was only added to bit by bit for over 9 months. As it was being developed, and during a period of time spent away from anything but the most basic computer access, A growing body of written work, describing elements and aspects of the changes and...

A long-form noise piece made by collecting source material on my trusty hand-held cassette recorder from the freezer. If you don't like noise, you won't enjoy this one so much, but if you do, enjoy it at high volume, or very low volume. You can put yourself into a trance with it, or let it lull you to sleep, your choice.

This release is an expanded detail from one of the themes from [JON7NET020] "Summer Collage Session". Although most of the component collages that made up that release were included, this one was left off so that the expanded detail could be heard on its own. This release is much less chaotic than the previous one, and provides a relaxing but stimulating trip through bell sounds. At times, the sounds bang and clash, and at other times spread themselves out sparsely, each note ringing...

Throughout the hottest part of the summer, I created a number of different pieces using several different techniques, some I already employ, some new, using found sounds and acoustic instruments to create a long swirling, sometimes chaotic collage of the pieces. My neighbor who is a dog trainer played me some of her 'sound conditioning tapes' which are used to acquaint dogs with the sounds of the real world. She told me while listening to the early versions of the collage that the music...

A while back, I spoke to Guy David about doing a guest release here on the label, and he told he was working on something he thought very much would fit When I recieved "Sound Experiment #1", I was definitely surprised, the sound was very different from what I had heard of Guy's work. Bolder, noisier, more improvisational, more at home with the power electronic sounds I have been enjoying lately. It seemed a natural fit with the wilder, more untamed sounds that have been...

During work on music videos for FOEM in 2006, I was donated a number of video files taken in Romania, which I was unable to use because of the PAL format. I was able to extract the audio from the files, and this release is a collage of those audio extracts. Many of the recordings were made on a train, so in listening you get a sort of warped scenic tour through Romania, painted largely in processed audio.

"Erschallend" (german = pealing, ringing out) continues the long-form album theme, and picks up somewhat where "Dynamic Interference" left off. Both albums are an ocean of sorts, on this one, sounds wash by you the way they might if individual waves in the ocean were made from sound instead of water. This album maintains an unsettling balance of gritty and lush elements throughout. It's recommended ( as with many recent releases) that you relax and let it take you wherever...
